Insulating the v-berth

This is one of those "might as well" projects since I'm already working on insulating the starboard cabin side and the fore hatch over the v-berth. The hull interior was covered with some sort metallic sheeting with plastic backing, which came off easily enough. The insulating material I used as 3/4" closed cell foam on the cabin sides, and I used 1/2" camping sleeping foam pads with mylar on one side to go under the horizontal surfaces. It was all then covered-up with cedar closet liner boards that I stained a pretty dark color (to help sleeping) and protected with some coats of lacquer (easier to apply than epoxy or varnish especially in hot and humid weather.)
